Hello all!
Just a reminder that our annual Dance-a-thon fundraiser is happening on Friday!!!  Everyone is very excited (including parents and teachers!) for our day of dancing fun!
Please be sure to have your child return their pledge envelope to their teacher tomorrow (Thursday).
If you haven’t seen the schedule, I’ve posted one on the gym doors.  You’re welcome to drop by and join us any time throughout the day!

Music by the Lake

 Any Grade Six students who are in Band, Strings or Choir are eligible to apply for Music by the Lake.  This year the camp will take place from June 1 to June 8.  Information about the camp is available at  Application forms are downloadable from the website site, and should be handed in to Ms. Spademan no later than Tuesday, February 19.

Interested Gr. 6 students will be invited to an information session in the music room on Wed. Feb. 6 during the lunch.  Former students who have attended MBTL report that it is a fantastic experience, so we encourage any students who love music to apply!
